Yesterday was my grandmother's funeral, she was a catholic so the whole thing was organized in a catholic church. And although I should've been serious and sad and stuff (since my grandma had just died), I was first annoyed and then somewhat amused by what the priest said. Several times, he mentioned that the funeral was just a temporary goodbye, since 'we were all going to meet Bernice again in heaven'. Also, according to the priest, my grandma was at that very moment catching up with family and friends who were already there.
Back home, I discussed this issue with my mom and sister, and apparently they both believe in an afterlife.
In the church, there were about 250 people, all bowing their heads and agreeing with the priest. I really had a hard time restraining myself from getting up and asking him where he had found the proof that there is an afterlife, a heaven. It kind of shocked me that me and my brother were the only ones in the whole church that weren't praying along. Apparently nobody else thought they had to be skeptical about what was said...
